Has it really been over a month since I have been here?! To say I have been busy is an understatement!
Our Boutique sales have remained up which means a lot of cutting and sewing and decorating little heirloom quality headbands into pieces of confection! We are so happy that we also are now able to sell our accessories at a local Boutique in our area!
Oh and then there was that little milestone that Mr. Tickled Pink and I reached. Okay a big milestone! We celebrated thirty years of marriage on November 12, 2013, yes, that means the date was 11.12.13
We took a beautiful trip to Paris with our best Friends to celebrate. Our Friend also happened to be the Best Man at our wedding all of those years ago!
In a day of throw away marriages we are truly proud to be married this long. I think it's also a testament to our Parents who served as wonderful role models that when the hard times come you work through them together. My favorite saying to write in Wedding cards is "Always make your shoulder a strong place to lean and your arms a soft place to fall" That pretty much sums it up he has been my strong shoulder to lean on countless times in my life and I in return have held him up. Yes we bicker and sometimes fight but at the end of the day we love and are there for each other.
I will leave you with a few of our Paris photos, I plan to add more as I get them edited.
We shared an Apartment that was just perfect, it was within walking distance of Museums, Restaurants and shops. I will share pictures of it later.
We dressed up to go to an over the top Dinner
We went for a beautiful carriage ride in the city around the Eiffel Tower! I highly recommend this if you ever visit Paris. Our Driver pointed out gorgeous landmarks and points of interest that we never would have seen!
This is my best friend, Teri and I before we left for the airport. See those umbrellas they were used almost everyday while we were there as it is their rainy Season. It did not matter one bit though and we think it added to the ambiance of Paris. It also made for beautiful photos at night!
This is the Locks of Love Bridge. As we were walking to a Museum one day, our Friends stopped and handed us a lock and key with a heart on it. You write your name on it and throw the key into the River as a symbol of your undying love and a love that is "locked" I had never heard of it before and cried at the sentiment. It was such a beautiful part of our trip.
Beautiful love songs filled the air as we attached our lock
We shared countless good dinners, wine and food
He was a street artist
We sent the Men to the Grocery store, can you tell?
We had many good blessings to cheer
I will be back this week with more photos. We took a trip to Palace
of Versailles and to stand in those massive rooms and imagine that Marie Antoinette arrived there at the age of 14 was more than I could take! JUST. GORGEOUS.
Have a tickled pink day, hug and appreciate those you love.
